The Effects of Racial Discrimination

Racial discrimination has a clear impact on your mental health. Here are some of the most common effects of racism on mental health:

  • You relive racist events and have trouble healing from them.
  • You avoid people or places that remind you of racist trauma you’ve experienced.
  • You don’t feel good about yourself, especially pertaining to your race.
  • You’re easily offended or frightened, given that you’ve been hurt in the past.
  • You feel depressed as a result of the trauma.
  • You frequently feel stressed, anxious, or depressed.

This is not a full list of the effects of racial discrimination. Systemic racism can also lead to a lack of necessary resources like:

  • Supportive or appropriate mental health care.
  • Job and economic opportunities.
  • Education.

To learn more about the effects of racism on mental health, read licensed therapist Michael Friedman’s article about intergenerational racial trauma.
